What we're about

I started this group because there appears to be no other Sydney groups focusing on analyzing Big Data*. This group is for people looking to share experience and or learn new methods for analyzing the data. It is also for people who have Big Data that they need help with. I have extensive Big Data experience from my time at eBay and will gladly help others in any way that I can. * Big Data is a term for datasets which can no longer fit in a database. Typically this happens at around the 1 terabyte mark. In addition, the data is usually unstructured (e.g. user click stream) which is even more difficult to analyze.

The first of this trilogy will be "Analytics Nirvana - what will Analytics look like when it's done right." Speaker 1: Dr Eugene Dubossarsky Synopsis: The potential of Data Analytics to transform organisations and society has only just begun to be realised. With the advent of globalisation, automation, AI and other drivers of competition and rapid change, there is an activity that is becoming more critical every day: good decision making. Crucial to good decision making is its main enabler, data analytics. As the sophistication of AI increases, the only human activities left will be those that cannot be automated. Increasingly, good decision making becomes the pre-eminent in-demand skill, with the assistance of powerful computational tools. This is a world where data literacy will be as universal as computer literacy is today, and “executives” are defined and rewarded by their ability to decide well, while the ability to “execute” is the more generally available skill or function. This is also a world where organisations are structured, incentivised and managed primarily according to the effective measurement and analysis of the most important metrics. Bio: Dr Eugene Dubossarsky is leader in the analytics field in Australia, with over 20 years’ commercial data science experience. He is a Founding Partner of AlphaZetta, head of the AlphaZetta global training Academy as well as AlphaZetta's Chief Data Scientist. He is also the founder of the Australia–New Zealand Data Analytics Network, with over 17,000 members, and the head of the Data Science Sydney group (6,000+ members), and Big Data Analytics Sydney (7000+ members) . He is regularly invited to be a conference presenter, consultant and advisor, and appears in print and on television to discuss data science and analytics, and advisory board member for listed companies, advising on AI and Data Science. Eugene also applies data science in an entrepreneurial setting, to financial trading and online startups, and is the creator of ggraptR, an interactive visualisation package in R. Speaker 2: The future of analytics - Automated Machine Learning (presentation from DataRobot) We look forward to seeing you in October!
